World Card Making Day

Today is World Card Making Day! I couldn’t ask for a better way to celebrate, making the birthday invitations for a very special One Year old…my beautiful niece Isabel…she turns one this month and we will be celebrating her special day on Halloween!

I love the Recollections line from Michael’s. The paper is clean and great for card making. The base is Desert Jewel and the details for the party are on the light color from Seaside.

I had some left over washi tape (first time using that!) and added a three dimensional pumpkin from the Silhouette Online store – you can get it here!

Take a minute this weekend and send out a card to that someone special in your life. Everyday should be a card making day.

Isn’t that Pinteresting!!

In case you missed my “Pinterest” debut…here it is! I find so much inspiration from around the web, Pinterest keeps it simple and organized.  As crafty and scrappy as I am, Pinterest has also helped around the house!

I have to thank Julissa Ortiz with Good Day Sacramento for coming over and visiting. We both agree, Pinterest is very addicting, so if you are not on Pinterest, you need to be – but fair warning… you will be hooked!

Keep an eye out for the projects I started this morning. They will be on my blog later this weekend!

HELLO Card

One of my favorite lines of scrapbook paper – My Minds Eye (MME). I was fortunate enough to earn the Miss Caroline collection at Scrapbook Expo and I absolutely LOVE this paper. This cute little card came together very quickly using my Silhouette Cameo. For the 3-dimensional flower I rolled the petals around my stylus to get some extra dimension.

Valentine’s Day

I do this every year. Every year I make Valentine’s for my girls to hand out to their friends at school. I tell myself very year I am going to get them done early. This year was like all the rest….and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

I found these adorable love birds brush set for PS, they were perfect for my book marks. The cards are 3.5″ x 5″, created in PSE 10. I used jumbo paper clips for the book marks and used the print and cut feature in my Silhouette Cameo. There is a small piece of foam between the two layers to give it some padding.

The girls loved the book marks. I told them they were extra special this year because I had help putting them together. This year daddy stayed up and helped. It was worth the 1:30am finish time having him as my assistant.

New Year’s Baby Shower

 

My sister’s sister-in-law asked for my help in celebrating the arrival of her new baby boy this January. She wanted to do a New Year theme shower and I think this card says it all!

A2 card was cut with my Silhouette Cameo, card base is from Lori Whitlock, LOVE her designs! I modified the New Years Celebration cut file from Silhouette Online Store to get a solid top hat and the baby image was a file I found on line – using the awesome Print n’ Cut feature on my Cameo.  And last, you can’t have a card without bling! I found a small bag of bling at Joann’s.
